Mrs. Shelley, B.Ed.
Hello Parents, my name is Mrs. Shelley and it is great to be back at The Little Schoolhouse as the Preschool and Kindergarten Teacher! I live in the community with my family and we feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful place. I have one dog and 5 amazing kids who are all grown up. I look forward to getting to know all of you and your children this year as we learn and play and grow!
My name is Helen Cirin. My family and I moved to Canada in 2008 from the UK, where I was a Paediatric nurse. I have had many years experience working with young children with various needs and their families. I now live with my husband and 2 children in West Bragg Creek. We enjoy hiking and skiing, and love it here! I am looking forward to another great year at The Little Schoolhouse!
I am new to the Schoolhouse this year and have been an education assistant for 15 years, 8 years of which were with kindergarten aged students. I have 2 lovely grown up daughters, one in 3rd year university and the other finishing her last year of high school this year. I love adventuring with my husband and 2 year old schnoodle named Zoomy, especially backpacking in the mountains. I also enjoy backcountry skiing, reading and baking.
My name is Kristyn and I have been part of the Little Schoolhouse for many years. All three of my children have attended the school and I have served on the Executive Board a number of times.
